Thermage®

Thermage® is an FDA approved, safe, clinically proven skin tightening and contouring procedure. The Thermage® procedure helps to improve tone, contour, and texture naturally through the stimulation of collagen with no downtime. It can improve your appearance with a revolutionary non-invasive radiofrequency technology. The Thermage® procedure has a skin tightening effect and renews facial contours by reshaping your skin’s innermost structures. A single skin tightening treatment helps to stimulate new collagen growth. Generally, some improvement is immediately visible and improvement continues for up to six months, depending on the skin’s condition and natural aging process. Results can last for years. Thermage® works on all skin types and tones. It can be performed on the entire face: eyes (including eyelids), and lips.

Thermage® has a Body Shape procedure that is also an FDA approved, non-invasive procedure that can help tighten, firm, reduce the appearance of cellulite, and shape the body following just one treatment with little to no downtime. Patients may expect:

  • Skin tightening and lifting
  • Circumferential reduction of body areas
  • Flatter and smoother skin

The Thermage® procedure is ideal for men and women who are not significantly overweight and are looking to help firm sagging skin and to reduce unwanted bulges. Generally, some improvement is immediately visible and continues for up to six months, depending on the skin’s condition and natural aging process. The skin tightening results can last for years depending on the individual’s skin condition and aging process.

How Thermage® works:

The skin is made up of three layers:

  1. A visible outer layer called the epidermis
  2. A collagen-rich underlayer beneath the surface called the dermis
  3. And the inner layer beneath the dermis called the subcutaneous layer, also known as the fat layer that has a web of collagen fibers

The collagen in these layers breaks down due to sun exposure, heredity, and the normal aging process and your skin begins to sag and wrinkle. Treatments that work just on the surface of the skin can’t do anything to restore the collagen in those under layers of the skin. Thermage’s® unique Capacitive Radiofrequency (CRF) technology safely heats the underlayer and the web of collagen in the inner layer, causing immediate tightening, improved tone, and improved texture.
